MILWAUKEE — Following the sudden death of former dean Joe Daniels, Marquette has named a new interim dean of the business school.

Tim Hanley will be acting as interim businesses dean beginning March 9.

This news comes less than a month after former dean Joe Daniels was struck by a vehicle on campus.

Hanley has been serving Marquette as the College of Business Administration's first-ever executive-in-residence.

According to Marquette Today, Hanley "is a long-time member of the college’s Dean’s Council and currently serves as a member of the university’s President’s Advisory Council and Campaign Executive Committee."

After the announcement by Provost Kimo Ah Yun, Hanley said he is, "humbled by the opportunity to continue Joe Daniels’ great work toward re-imagining business education at Marquette University, including building a new home for the College of Business Administration."

Back in January, Marquette President Michael Lovell addressed the campus to announce the construction a new business school. Former dean Daniels, was a large part of that development. Now, the school must begin the search for the next permanent dean.

Provost Ah Yun is said to be meeting with college faculty soon to discuss the search.
